What a busy beginning of the year it has been! January has been like a turn of a fresh page with new ideas and opportunities and with all the support and encouragement I have been fortunate to receive my motivation levels have skyrocketed in a few weeks! I have been learning the importance of slowing down and taking care of myself, and in return, my head has been filled with new ideas I can't wait to get doing!
One of the main exciting things of January was me applying for a Santander Start-up Funding through Nest. I was lucky enough to win it last year which really marks the beginning of my brand and the building of it towards this self-employed placement year. A very exact 10-minute presentation and me wearing a piece from the new collection was enough to convince the investors that I was a good egg, and I was one of the lucky ones to be awarded! I'm very pleased and have amazing ideas for this well-needed money.
SANNA SUVI has also been recognised as a Start-up To Watch and will be showcasing in the Nest Awards in March! You can vote by clicking here, and if you are joining us for the evening, come say hello!
On top of that, we had a photo shoot at the end of January for the upcycled and organic collections I have been working on! I couldn't be more excited for you guys to see what I've been working on and what new is coming! The organic collection is a combination of blues and greys, soon in pink tones too as we get to experiment with avocado dyeing...so stay tuned!
